When I press down and turn the know the pilot lights but as soon as you let up on the knob to turn it there is a click and the pilot light goes out.. This is on my Mr. Heater Big Buddy


When the pilot lights continue holding the button down for a full minute and then release. It should stay lit then to allow you to turn it to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit after holding it for the full minute, then the thermocouple will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

I just bought a brand new Kozy World blue flame heater and the pilot light will not stay lit and when it is lit, it goes out as soon as I turn up the nob.


The thermocouple is bad or not aligned properly. It is the metal bar in front of the pilot light. This bar senses the heat put off by the pilot light. If it does not get hot it will not allow the gas to flow. You either need to align it so that it is in front of the pilot light and receives enough heat to allow the gas valve to operate or possibly the thermocouple has gone bad and needs replacing.

It could also be that you are not waiting long enough. The thermocouple must sense the heat for at least one minute or more before it will let the gas valve turn on. Turn everything to off for at least five minutes. Re-light the pilot light and let it burn for at least one minute and then try turning the knob to on.

Why would the pilot light ignite then turn off?


If it is a true "pilot" light, it needs to be held down long enough to generate the milivolts needed to prove to the gas valve that he is ready to open, other wise the gas valve would open, not igniting, thus causing a "gas leak". Turn the t-stat OFF, turn gas valve to pilot, push down on pilot knob, light pilot and hold for 2 minutes. After 2 mins let go, and if pilot stays lit, turn gas valve to ON, and turn the stat to heat and turn it up to desired temp. If pilot does not stay lit after doing above, try sanding thermo couple( the thing the flame is sitting in) or just spend the $15 bucks and replace therm couple. azeddysac@yahoo.com

The pilot will not stay lit on my GWN20T. Have tried cleaning with compressed air. Would this be the thermocouple? If so can I replace with a universal unit? Lowes has a Honeywell 24' for a 30millivolt....


if the pilot stays lit while you hold down the nob and goes out when you let up on it then you need to replace the thermocoulpe and yes thye honeywell will work.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

Pilot will not stay lit after button release


most likely you have a thermopile that has low output. it takes about 100mv to maintain pilot light

Pilot light wont stay lit


If this is a new item then you will need to let the gas run alittle bit longer. If this is a used item then it sounds like you are going to need to replace the flame sensor. You may have to even do it on the new item. But usually for the first start you willl need to hold the pilot down for about 1 minute to really let things heat up in there then when you release all will work
